After 14 people got sick with salmonella, Diamond Pet Foods expanded the recall for certain batches of its Diamond Natural Lamb Meal & Rice dry dog food. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it is investigating the salmonella outbreak that may be related to products from Diamond Pet Foods. CDC officials said the affected dog food was manufactured at a facility in South Carolina, but the illness has been detected in nine states. Investigators said it’s possible the people got sick after contact with dogs that ate the food. The recall affects several brands of food manufactured by Diamond Pet Foods and consumers can visit www.diamondpetrecall.com for a complete list.
Included in the expanded recall is one production run and four production codes of Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul Adult Light formula dry dog food. According to the FDA, one bag of the product has tested positive for Salmonella. Diamond Naturals Small Breed Adult Dog Lamb & Rice Formula dry dog food has also been added to the list of pet food being recalled by Diamond Pet Foods. The company says the recall of its four production codes is a precautionary measure. It says no dog illnesses have been reported.
Pets with Salmonella infections may have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. If left untreated, pets may become lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If pets have consumed the recalled product and have these symptoms, a veterinarian should be contacted.
Individuals handling dry pet food can become infected with Salmonella, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with surfaces exposed to this product. Pet owners who are unsure if the product they purchased is included in the recall, or who would like replacement product or a refund, may contact Diamond Pet Foods at 800-442-0402, or by visiting diamondpetrecall.com.
